Guess What???

I just did a whoppin good bunch of tests...look and see...

GH 4-5 DEG
KH 9-10 DEG
PH 7.4ish

I did a co2 but it failed twice so either i have over 60ppm or 0ppm or a bad tester
I would also have some nitrate #'s up there but I left the kit 2.5 hrs away at a friends house...

Isn't this exciting, now wt* does all this mean...

all I know is my ottos are swimming upright, my shrimp are breeding like rabbits, my plants are pearling and about to spill over the top, and my water looks like cheap pea soup.

I think it has to be a over the hair algea and was really excited, then the green water happened...but it is much better than it was and seems to slowly be getting better.

If you have happy plants and are adding CO2, add PO4 to the water, assuming you have some nitrate in the water. The green water should dissipate.


Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
